Welwyn Garden City was the second garden city in England, founded in 1920 by Sir Ebenezer Howard. It was designed to combine the benefits of living in the city with the countryside on your doorstep.
Much of Sir Howard’s vision still holds true today, and Welwyn Garden City is now highly sought after by commuters looking country living combined with fast and efficient access to London.
Welwyn Garden City today is full of character and culture with a vibrant mix of chic restaurants, cosmopolitan cafés and traditional gastro pubs. Additionally, you will find fantastic shopping, including The Howard Centre, John Lewis and other major high street names and with specialist boutiques in close proximity.
